Visit to the BC Legislature – April 11, 2016
On April 11, 2016, World Parkinson's Awareness Day, Parkinson Society British Columbia visited the BC Legislature in Victoria, BC.
The purpose of the meetings was to build awareness of the impact of Parkinson's disease (PD) on those diagnosed and their families, and to ask for support in the development of a provincial strategy for the management of PD.
